Clay Bubble Charms

My clay bubble charms were such a hit in recent swaps and giveaways, so, for part of my friend Dawn's Spring Fling Tutorial Challenge, I decided to make a quick tutorial for all to enjoy. You will need the following supplies: Polymer clay of choice, a tile surface to work on, a textured surface (I use a vinyl wallpaper scrap), a clay blade and a stylus, scissors, small graphics or stickers, glass bubbles, eyepins, jump rings, and beads.

Kari this is SO cool! I am totally doing this for Artfest Charms. I was trying to think of what I could do in large quantities that would look really cool. I like this project bacause I can put my minions (hubby and kids) to work on it with me! Thanks for sharing!

I too was part of the tutorial challenge and that is how I found your great tutorial. I also work with polymer clay and loved to see your idea.

I like how you used the glass bubble, that is really cool! I have heard of people purposely getting the glass bubbles to crackle by putting them in ice water after baking. I have never tried it myself, so I'm not positive it works, but it might be cool to experiment with it.

Thank you for the great tutorial... The cheerful music is a nice touch!
